Live Webinar: CCR Family Finding and Engagement


The Continuum of Care Reform has increased the need for California’s juvenile probation departments to find ways to meaningfully engage immediate and extended family members in helping youth to succeed on probation. This training is designed for line staff, supervisors, and managers interested in learning new family finding strategies and techniques for locating and effectively engaging family and involving them in case planning activities to benefit the youth. The goal of engagement is to ensure these family members play a supportive role in the youth’s life, regardless of where the youth resides. The training will help staff and supervisors develop approaches to integrate this work into their daily activities of case management without becoming an extra burden.
